COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tavern Ale is top-fermented, making it an ale. It is a medium to full-bodied beer with a hoppy aroma. Tavern Ale is served unfiltered resulting in a hazy or cloudy appearance. It has a full malt finish with a well rounded bitterness. Tavern Ale is an American Pale Ale because of the large amounts of American hops which lends a distinct, almost citrusy flavor to the beer. Therefore, our Tavern Ales is quite different from the "spicy" or "herby" flavor of European hops.

Keg at the Duchess of Cambridge, London, during the American Beer Festival. Pours a mostly clear amber with a creamy, white cap. Light toasty malt aroma with mild tangy melon. Light to medium sweet flavor with some toasty malts and caramel, and light piney bitterness. Medium in body with average carbonation. Moderately sweet on the finish with faint, sticky pine, mild bread and dry caramel. It’s very basic stuff.

Bottle, Ship and Mitre bottle shop, West Kirby. Amber pour with a restrained off white head. Some caramel and hoppage detected in the nose, and a similar story unfolded in the flavour. Some bitterness in the finish , nut no real punch there. Drinkable if largely unremarkable fayre.

Pretty average beer. Starts nice, amber with a thin lacing head. The aroma is a little weak. Mostly hops with a bit of bread. The flavor has the bread with a bit of hops. The finish is a little watery.

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2012
A hazy orange amber colored ale with a fading small white head. lots of sediment here with light carbonation. Aroma of light hops and malt, basic. A desent taste with some citrusy hops and caramel malts. A slightly toasted malt taste at the back end. On the palette it’s thin and with some astingency. An okay beer, although i wouldn’t rush out for another one.
